There was a bit of excitement yesterday when a plane made an unscheduled landing in Highlands County. Instead of setting it down at the Sebring Regional Airport, the pilot instead landed next door in a field at the sod farm.
There were no injuries and no apparent damage to the single engine aircraft. No word on what caused him to land short of the airport.
